How is the rain influencing pest activity this summer?
According to WFSB, Norfolk has been getting a lot of rain this month; so much so, it’s resulted in road closures, washed out culverts and bridges, and created emergency conditions. It’s also affecting pests. When torrential downpours occur, pests are displaced from their nests and outdoor habitats and will search for better conditions. Unfortunately, that often ends up being inside homes and businesses.
Of course, rain isn’t the only weather influencing pest activity either. When it’s hot and humid out, property owners are likely to see spikes in pest activity and while it might not be noticeable, there’s a good chance insects will breed earlier than usual due to weather.
